"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Yes. The V is for Valley.
According to the link below, from the official Fresno athletics site, it symbolizes the university's pride in representing the San Joaquin Valley.
From their site... The green "V" is featured on all Fresno State student-athletes' uniforms, including inside the blue stripe on the back of Fresno State's football helmets.The mark can also be found on the dog collar of the Bulldogs' logo and throughout the Department of Athletics.The "V" symbolizes Fresno State's pride in representing the San Joaquin Valley and the color green was selected to honor the importance of the agriculture industry to the region.The university is one of the most prominent agriculture schools in the nation and the world's richest agricultural area in export dollars
These teams look the same and it's upsetting for me and my 20 pixel stream.
Why was there no commercial interruption after the punt? Is it even possible to play a game of football in such a way?
Terrific catch by Jensen.
I love defensively-oriented games as they give the announcers more opportunities to showcase their idiocy.

except there isn't any jhackney and OMG Shirtless is either absent or lurking, and M-Wolverine didn't make the thread. So not a whole lot like two years ago I guess. Either way, Merry Christmas BD.
Also, I can't believe that was so long ago; those were the threads that got me hooked on MGoBoard as opposed to reading the front page and a couple threads.
Merry Christmas to both of you!
Those were the days...late night electronic book piracy and philosophy that went way over my head.
but I really do have some fond memories with that whole crew watching all the shitty bowls "together" and also knowing at least one of you would be on those drinking threads when the lights went off and movies went on in my apartment after enjoying too much beer/wine/liquor.
Movies, malt beverages, and megangoblue--a winning combination!
who is sadly now gone. But yeah, those were some fun times all around. She appreciates the picture tag on Facebook by the way.
What happened to Waters? Nothing bad I hope. Waters was a pretty quality poster, and to the best of my knowledge, always kept it civil despite the Sparty bashing.
I happened to exchange a couple emails with him last year and I've been meaning to send him one and ask what the deal was, but he was pretty adament that he wouldn't be posting here any more. If I had to guess, it's more of the same stuff that led to BiSB leaving his mod duties; he had a long post in BiSB's retirement thread about his perception of the MGoBoard lately, and it wasn't exactly rosy.
I miss the freeform approach to thread creation that we enjoyed in days of yore. Nowadays I mostly skim the comments for my favorite posters and point out when ridiculously awful things happen for my own amusement. Tennis season is coming up again and our new transfers could really perform well with their fancy top-100 rankings.
Now if only some random med school would offer me a spot in their next class...
of freeform thread creation. The grown ups are gone for a couple days so go for whatever (not really though). Just make sure it has a good title, okay?
I can't give Shirtless what he wants for Christmas since I'm not as devious as he is, but here's a half hour of what you always wanted.
Can I make frontpage posts with >100000 points?
BD on bowl/drinking threads: good.
BD being the face of MGoBlog until Brian returns: bad (in a good way).
"The surviving mods have appointed me emperor for life."
Is this the same Garrett Gilbert that played in the national championship game a few years ago?
Correct, he played for UTA.
Got thrown into action for Texas because Colt McCoy got hurt early in that game. Ending up being a flop at Texas so he transferred to SMU
Well, Fresno State just showed the world another example of how it is quite possible to defeat yourself on an offensive drive by getting sacked and then sacked again and allowing a safety. You have to wonder if the conversation on the sideline sounds like, "Failing blocks, perhaps on the next drive we could work our way to throwing the ball before we are pummeled...". Small steps for the Fresno State offense, right?
28 confidence points down the drain. Fresno has screwed before in bowl pick 'em too. Don't know why I picked them so high. F them.
My first bad pick of the bowl season. I am sure it won't be my last, but that was an upset I didn't expect.
